Responsible breeders spend so much time carefully planning a litter, preparing for the welp, and devoting the necessary time and resources to raise the puppies. Vida Spring Raw has recently partnered with some breeders to take one burden off of their shoulders - the going home bag! We carefully curate USA made, ethically sourced, durable and effective products that help provide a strong foundation and a fun collection to share with puppy homes.
Puppies love to chew! We recommend healthy chew options in the bag, so new puppy parents have something ready to offer. Our most popular option is an assortment of chews we call the "puppy pack sampler" (see image). Puppy homes love trying a variety of things they would often have to purchase in a larger bag. Some breeders have opted to just purchase a whole bag of one of the treats that pair well with a toy they are also offering. For example, a bag of VE salmon rings with a small West Paw Qwizl.
Puppies need to play! It makes them both mentally and physically tired. We recommend either a chew toy that can have treats added to it, or a soft toy than can be cuddled. The West Paw small Qwizl can hold cod skins, salmon rings, or freeze-dried hearts. The small Toppl can hold peanut butter, smashed banana or frozen kefir, and is an easier to clean alternative to a kong. Plus they are non toxic, made in the USA, and come with a guarantee. West Paw also has mini floppy plush toy with no stuffing that is priced well to include in a puppy pack. Cycle Dog, another USA based eco-friendly company has a small duraplush bone, medium springy thing and small fuzzball that would be great plush options to include as well.
For the breeder, we offer a discount if a toy is bundled with a puppy sampler pack or bag of treats. New puppy parents appreciate the opportunity to save money, too, so we include a personalized coupon in the puppy pack for a one time discount of 10% off all non food products from our store good for 4 months.
Offering new puppy parents a foundation of healthy, durable USA made products can be one less thing breeders need to worry about when preparing to send puppies home. Let Vida Spring Raw put together a custom pack for you. Everyone loves to Treat Well, Play Often and Save Money!
